Welcome to our December OUR NEWS – the final newsletter for 2022. Yes, we hear you… it is not December just yet… but we wanted to get this to you in good time.

We know that everyone is under increasing financial pressure at the moment, which is why this edition highlights how to stay more protected this season whilst shopping online.

We are also pleased to bring you a selection of discounts from our corporate partners on a variety of door locks and cyber protection software, along with a 50% discount on Neighbourhood Watch branded tote bags and pin badges – ideal gifts for Coordinators. Please note that we do not want to increase pressure to purchase items but to ease the financial pressure on you.

If you are impacted by the cost of living and need some extra support, be that in financial support, money-saving tips; steps to avoid becoming a victim of crime, or support to help reduce loneliness and isolation, please visit our dedicated cost-of-living support pages on our website. The link is in the newsletter.
